Max Cranes Unloading & assembly of mining shovel at Leigh Creek Coal Field

Max Cranes with Komatsu at Leigh Creek Coal Field

Komatsu Australia recently engaged Max Cranes to unload and assemble a brand new Komatsu PC-5000 Hydraulic Mining Shovel at the Alinta Leigh Creek Coal Field.

The 380 tonne Machine was assembled onsite over a 3.5 day period utilising 250 and 180 tonne cranes.

The heaviest lift was the dual lift of the 99,500kg assembled undercarriage onto the preassembled track pads. Both cranes lifted this at a 10 metre radius.

Due to extensive planning and a highly motivated work crew, the project was completed ahead of schedule and without incident adding value for our customer.
